SACD/DVD: Carl Perkins & Friends

CD+DVD/hybrid SACD: rereleased on the Madfish label.
As many of you will remember, both Carl Perkins and George Harrison made some kind of a comeback with the TV-show "Blue Suede Shoes - A Rockabilly Session", which was broadcast in the UK on January 1, 1986 by Channel 4. The show was a televised concert, recorded and filmed on 21 October 1985, the first time in nearly ten years that George had performed live in front of an audience. The audience of the day consisted of of specially invited members and dancers from a rockabilly club in London, as well as ticket winners among listeners of Capital radio London. The concert was later released as a video cassette, and years later as a DVD.
In 2006, the TV-concert was also released as a little acknowledged CD from a small company, Snapper Music. Ringo Starr was one ot the other artists performing at the concert, alongside Dave Edmunds, Eric Clapton, Rosanne Cash and rockabilly revivalists Stray Cats.
Unnoticed by us, the concert has again been re-released, this time as a hybrid SACD and accompanying DVD by another small company, Madfish on 14 August, 2015.

For lovers of vinyl, the album was made available as a pair of 10" discs on July 10, 2015. Here is the back cover of that release:

Is the SACD stero or a surround sound mix?

I'm guessing neither - mine showed up just now from Amazon, and although I haven't opened it yet (in case it has to go back) there is no mention of SACD anywhere on the packaging, or on the Madfish website for that matter. I suspect an Amazon error on this one.
